Using the Optoma ML300 ultra-slim portable projector you can display images, videos and documents from your laptop, iPad2®, tablet PC, smart phone or directly from the projector itself. Watch your favourite movie or give a winning presentation on the big screen, with minimal setup time.
The Optoma ML300 is the second projector in the ML range and uses the latest ‘Lamp-free’ LED technology for exceptional colour fidelity, reliability and longevity. LED technology eliminates the need for lamp replacements and saves you both time and money.
300 ANSI Lumens (LED) brightness generates enough light output to create a big screen image in a small to medium sized room, whilst the 3000:1 contrast ratio and HD Ready resolution keeps images pin sharp with stunning detail.
The ML300’s appearance has similarities between previous Optoma Pico projectors and is not too dissimilar in size, its dimensions of 184mm (W) x 105mm (D) x 44 mm (H) and weighing a mere 635g, truly warrant the term ‘portable and compact’ – which is highly advantageous for executives and consumers on the move.
The casing itself is sleek and professional with buttons that stay illuminated in blue light for use in environments with ambient lighting. The user face is simple to operate and mimics the button pattern on top of the projector.
Media can be stored externally on a USB stick, Micro SD card¹ or in the internal memory of the ML300 and you can present or watch movies straight from the device itself. There’s no need to carry a laptop or external source around with you. Integrated speakers eliminate the need for an audio device and wireless streaming capabilities allow you to present straight from your smart phone or tablet².
The ML300 can also be tilted up to a 30° angle and the image will automatically re-adjust, without having to manually correct the image; drastically reducing setup time and keystone complications.
The Optoma ML300 has a range of integrated multimedia players which can display photos, videos, Microsoft Office documents and Adobe PDF files directly from the on-board memory, a Micro SD card or a USB memory stick¹ – without any need for file conversion. You can also add music to your slideshow or presentation for extra ambience.
Videos: The ML300 directly supports all of the most popular video and music file formats. What’s more, being both HD Ready and using LED technology, you can also be sure of vibrant colours, depth and image clarity that will not disappoint.
Photos: Insert the Micro SD card from your smart phone or camera¹ straight into the ML300 and instantly share photos without the need for additional cables or wiring.
Presentations and Documents: With native support for Microsoft Office and Adobe PDF files, you can simply save your work onto the ML300’s 1.3GB internal memory, a Micro SD card or USB memory stick* and you are ready to go, you will only need the projector and storage device.
The ML300 is equipped with a range of connections, including: HDMI, VGA, Video and Audio inputs. This allows a lot of flexibility and gives you the option to connect an iPad2®, laptop, DVD player or tablet PC.
USB Display: What if your laptop or tablet has no video output? With USB-Display you can now mirror your desktop to the projector using the supplied micro-USB cable, for ultimate flexibility.
You can completely eliminate the use of wires whilst using the Optoma ML300. Media and presentation materials can be wirelessly streamed from a PC or Mac to projector, with the use of an Optoma Mini Wi-Fi Dongle (sold separately).
This thumbnail sized device connects discreetly to the USB port on your ML300, bringing you seamless wireless connectivity in a highly portable package. Deliver big-screen presentations streamed to your projector wirelessly from your laptop, tablet or smart phone.
Longer life: As is typical with all lamp based projectors, image brightness will decrease over time until inevitably, the lamp needs to be replaced. The ML300 uses cutting edge LED technology, with an exceptional life-span to completely eliminate the need for expensive replacement lamps.
High Brightness: In many situations the perceived brightness of an LED projector can be up to twice the brightness of an equivalent lamp-based projector, due to the exceptional colour fidelity created by LED technology. When combined with the extraordinary life of LED, you can be sure that your ML300 will be crystal clear and bright for many years to come.
